A cement truck toppled over on Wednesday (Oct. 5) morning in the Spout Spring area of Appomattox County.

According to the Appomattox Volunteer Fire Department and the Virginia State Police, both of which responded to the call just after 7 a.m., the truck overturned on Reedy Spring Road. This road intersects Hwy. 460 about 3.5 miles east of the Campbell-Appomattox county line.

The Appomattox VFD’s hazmat truck reported to the scene, and tow trucks came to upright the vehicle.

There were no immediate reports as to the cause of the accident, extent of the damage, whether there were any injuries, or if there was any spillage of cement. The State Police are investigating the rollover.
